Invoice from Arnold O. Beckman to W. E. Baier
for developing and calibrating McLeod gauges and glass electrodes -- components involved in the early Beckman pH meter.
Arnold Beckman invented his first pH meter in 1934 at the request of a chemist from the California citrus industry, who needed an accurate way to measure the acidity of his product. The resulting instrument kicked off rapid development not only of Beckman Instruments, Inc. but also of the electronic scientific instrument industry.
